Thinking of you. You have already been gone a week today daddy and how how I miss you

Anna Nov 29 2021 12:00 AM

Well buddy, I have too many beautiful memories that I am eternally grateful for. I will cherish each second I got to have with you. I'm going to miss the small things, like getting to pull your ear, or fighting with you about football. I'm going to miss sitting in the sun next to you and listening to music. Now I'm going to look up at the sky and ask, "what song next grandpa?" I'm going to miss coming home from school and getting to tell you about my day. I'm going to miss your stories grandpa. I'm going to miss the sound of your voice and getting to hear your laugh. But most of all I'm going to miss your hugs and holding your hand buddy. It was time that God needed you more then me, and I'm so happy for you grandpa, so you come down and tell me about how amazing heaven is ok buddy. And I'll know that when were playing our music at full volume you'll be right there with us. And one day when my time comes I'll be waiting for you ok buddy? I love you my grandpa.
